While checking the garden tonight, we discovered an unexpected flower growing where the ‘hakurei’ turnips and cabbage greens were planted. Those vegetables are mostly finished for the year. The remaining cabbage greens have quit producing leaves and are flowering, as I described in this post and this one.
That’s dill leaves that you see in front of the petunia; like many herbs, dill spreads readily and comes up throughout the garden.
I’ve had ‘volunteer’ petunias come up before (see this post), in a pot where they had previously been planted, but I’ve no idea how the seed made its way into the vegetable garden. The flower looks the same, so the seed probably did come from my petunias.
